About me

I was born in Cordoba, Argentina, in 1967. I studied Architecture at undergraduate level at Facultad de Arquitectura, Urbanismo y Diseño at Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (UNC), graduating in 1992. I later pursued PhD studies in Italy and obtained a Dottorato di Ricerca in Composizione Architettonica at Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia (2000).

I am also been a member of Carrera del Investigador Científico (Scientific Researcher Track) of CONICET (the Argentine Council of Scientific and Technical Research), since 2002. I have directed research projects at Science and Technology organizations since 1999. I received the Bernardo Houssay award granted by Secretaría de Ciencia, Tecnología e Innovación Productiva (Secretary of Science Technology and Innovation) for Scientific and Technological Research in the Junior Researcher category in the field of Architecture in 1993. I have directed grant recipients and PhD candidates since 2004.

I have been the Director of the M.A. in Innovative Processes Design at Universidad Católica de Córdoba since 2005. I specializes in Architecture and Project-Specific Research Methodologies. I have lectured in courses and conferences in universities in countries such as Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Spain and Uruguay.

I speak Spanish, English, French, Italian and Portuguese.

My work

I edit print and digital publications. In 1992, at the beginning of my career, I worked with Marina Waisman. I established i+p Publishing with Omar Paris. i+p has published boogazine 30-60 cuaderno latinoamericano de arquitectura [Latin American Dossier of Architecture] for 15 years. The publication was awarded an honorable mention at the 2010 Panamerican Biennial of Architecture of Quito.

My articles have been printed in Argentina and abroad in publications such as ARQ Clarín, Summa, Vitruvius and Quaderns. I am a member of the editorial committees of different Latin American publications. Among my digital publications, blogs like Sembrar en el desierto and Fractales y arquitectura are particularly noteworthy. I have participated in Editatonas (such as New York Guggenheim’s Women in Architecture) and I am a regular contributor to Wikipedia, where I take part in WikiProyecto Mujeres. I have authored three books and co-authored 14.

I have been a jury in international contests, accolades and biennials such as Bienal Iberoamericana de Arquitectura y Urbanismo, the Instituto de Arquitetos do Brasil award, Bienal de Arquitectura de Perú, Bienal Internacional de Arquitectura Boliviana, and Bienal Internacional de Argentina, among others.

I have managed the Un día | una arquitecta website since 2015, where I have written 50 articles. I organized the opening event of the Bienal Internacional de Arquitectura de Buenos Aires (Women and Architecture Meeting), which devoted two days to the presentation of Argentine women architects. Additionally, I set up the meetings of Un día | una arquitecta in Cordoba and Cochabamba, Bolivia. I also presented the website at the 2º Bienal Nacional de Diseño (Buenos Aires), at the Women in Architecture international seminar, in Valencia, Spain, and at the 18th UIFA Congress, in Washington.
